associate professor of anthropology at the University of Connecticut,
says the Pequot attack on Wethersfield, Connecticut, in 1637, was the
event of the Pequot War and led to Connecticut's declaration of war
against the Pequot tribe a week later. McBride will explore the
implications of the attack and its connection to recent archeological
work performed at the Webb-Deane-Stevens (WDS) Museum. The presentation will be
preceded by a wine reception, by donation, at 6 p.m. in the Webb Barn.
Admission is free for members, $5 for nonmembers, payable at the door.
